English as a World Language - TEFL Blog


Wed, 06 Nov 2019 Elizaveta Pachina Alumni Experiences English as a World Language English is considered a universal language, mainly because it is widely spoken all over the world. English was originally the language of England. Its expansion became imperative due to the dominance in world trade, religion, technology, tourism, education and so on. UK expansion and incursion of the USA as the first world power saw the migration of the English language all over the world. About 70 countries adopt the English language as their official language and statistics have it that the English language is one of the easiest languages to learn when compared with other languages like Chinese, French, German or Spanish.

Can I teach English with just a TEFL certificate? - ✔️ ✔️ ✔️ ITTT TEFL & TESOL


Can I teach English with just a TEFL certificate? We should start by acknowledging that there are some countries where a degree is required for certain teaching jobs. However, even within these countries there are often opportunities for teachers without a degree. In such situations you would need to be more flexible in terms of the type of job and conditions. As we will see later, undertaking volunteering or internship programs are examples of such flexibility. The main point here is that you can teach in many countries without a degree, provided you do have some other attributes or qualifications that employers are looking for. One of the most important qualifications worldwide for EFL teachers is the TEFL certificate. If you have a certificate of at least 120 hours then you should be...  [Read more]

5 Simple Ideas on Teaching Grammar - TEFL Blog


Fri, 02 Aug 2019 Elizaveta Pachina Teaching Ideas 5 Simple Ideas on Teaching Grammar I think of myself as having been fortunate enough to have had the opportunity to learn other languages at a young age. I was taught French in primary school and at home, I learned or acquired Spanish. At school, I remember my language teacher being very textbook-oriented and she focused and followed the book to the “T”. I picked up easily on the grammar because I had already learned Spanish at home and I was also very keen to learn foreign languages, especially French. The grammar didn’t seem difficult or boring to me at all because I had already been exposed to the language at a very early age. However, many students didn’t feel the same way I did and had difficulty with the subject and...  [Read more]

Troubles Faced by Students from China When Learning English - TEFL Blog


Fri, 08 Nov 2019 Elizaveta Pachina Teaching Ideas Troubles Faced by Students from China When Learning English If you think of Chinese ESL students it is safe to assume that most teachers would immediately worry about how they should teach phonics to Mandarin speakers.

The Importance of Phonetics when Teaching English - TEFL Blog


Wed, 15 Jul 2020 Elizaveta Pachina Alumni Experiences The Importance of Phonetics when Teaching English For the longest time, people have separated teaching English from linguistics, which tends to include all their subcategories. However, phonetics, in particular, plays an incredibly integral part of the teaching of the English language. Why is an understanding of phonetics important in aiding the teaching pronunciation, articulation, and intonation? Being able to demonstrate how one changes the shape of their mouth, or the placement of their tongue can be the difference between someone speaking correct English and sounding as close as possible to a native speaker. Without at least a basic knowledge of this concept, how can we as teachers properly explain and display the way our...  [Read more]

What is Business English? - TEFL Blog


Wed, 15 Apr 2020 Elizaveta Pachina Teaching Ideas What is Business English? The simplest definition of "business English" is English as it is used in the business world, e.g, in trade, commerce, and finance. It is a branch of ESP (English for Specific Purposes) because the combination of certain words, phrases, and politeness present in business English is specific to conducting business meetings, giving presentations, performing negotiations, and handling business correspondence and reports. Due in part to the dominance of the economy of the English speaking world (e.g., America and Europe) in the global marketplace, English came to be regarded as the international language of business. With the growth of global economic interdependence, learning business English has become...  [Read more]

How can I teach online without a degree? - ✔️ ✔️ ✔️ ITTT TEFL & TESOL


How can I teach online without a degree? With the help of the information we have provided below, you can start teaching English as a foreign language online even if you don’t have a degree. We have looked at why some employers might insist on a degree, how to increase your chances of getting hired, and where to hunt for jobs. Why do some online teaching jobs require a degree? Normally, employers require a degree in order to obtain a work visa when hiring someone to teach English abroad. Visas are not a problem, though, when it comes to teaching online - so why do they still want teachers with degrees? One reason can be found in recent reforms made in the largest TEFL market: China. China is the largest TEFL market in the world, and this is also true for the online TEFL sector, where...  [Read more]

How much is it to do a TEFL course? - ✔️ ✔️ ✔️ ITTT TEFL & TESOL


How much is it to do a TEFL course? Within the TEFL world there is no standardized content or set course length, which allows providers to offer any style of course they want at whatever price they see fit. When choosing the right option to suit you it is best not to simply go for the cheapest one available as it may not be of sufficient quality or depth to satisfy potential employers in the country you wish to work in. Also, cheap courses are unlikely to provide suitable preparation for starting a new career as an EFL teacher.
